The focus of the Centre for Business Sustainability @ NBS is on corporate sustainability and responsible business operations (with respect to the natural environment, society and communities). The mission of the Centre is to create platforms for interdisciplinary research and engage with other academic institutions, businesses and industry associations, through organization of research seminars, talks, forums and conference on corporate sustainability, and writing of case studies on corporate sustainability. The ultimate vision is to create greater awareness about corporate sustainability and socially responsible business operations among students, faculty and companies.
Partnering with Singapore Business Federation (SBF), the Centre writes case studies on Singapore firms that have successfully implemented sustainable business practices and innovative green technologies. The Centre also organizes an interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series on Business Sustainability. As part of the seminar series, the Centre invites several leading global scholars on corporate sustainability.
